In Topic: 'District Detroit': Red Wings' New Arena Details Released

20 July 2014 - 01:30 PM


18k actual seats and into the 20s with standing room and suite capacity?   


The article from Crain's Detroit Business states that the new arena will seat about 20,000.



The arena will seat about 20,000, rather than the 18,500 previously disclosed, Ilitch said. Joe Louis Arena seats 20,066, second in capacity in the 30-team National Hockey League only to the Bell Centre’s 21,273 in Montreal.

In addition to a more-than-20,000-seatarena, plans call for new residential buildings and dozens of restaurants and retail, as well as a hotel, new parks and streetlights, and other remade infrastructure. Ilitch said the area will offer an intimate, festive air that he compared to European cities known for their street life.


I had heard as well that the arena was going to seat about 18,000, but the article states that it's going to be more than 20,000.  I wonder who is correct.

According to Ticketmaster, there are still some tickets available through the box office.  They are the seats showing in blue on the map.  Just zoom in on the upper bowl sections (the red seats are secondary market).

You're saying you have tickets to the WC and didn't receive the commemorative ones?  These are WC tickets you're referring to, right?  As opposed to tickets to other events (OHL, AHL, Alumni).


Yes, that's correct.  I bought my tickets to the WC back in October when Ticketmaster released additional ones.  I figured I might get the commemorative ones because there was no print at home option & they were being sent around the same time (early December) as all the other ones.  Had I purchased them through one of the Wings sales with the special password, I would have got commemorative tickets.  I guess that's what I get for being indecisive!!  I probably should have kept my order from last year.  I'll just have to check eBay after the first of the year to get one from someone.  I did purchase my Alumni game tickets from the Wings sale & got the commemorative tickets. 


Did they change something with the GLI tickets? I could have sworn they said a ticket was good for both days. But my ticket only says the 27th. Or was it just both games for whichever day you purchased?


No, the tickets are only good for one of the days of the GLI.  I remember when I purchased the WC tickets through the sale last year (for the game that wasn't played), you had to select one of the days of the GLI.  They were never supposed to be good for both days.

I believe I heard this during an intermission of a recent game radio broadcast: the parking rate in certain lots at Michigan Stadium will be fifty-dollars. Y/N?

I've also noticed that some of the merchandise being sold doesn't have "2014".


I wouldn't doubt it concerning some lots around there charging $50.00 to park there.  Pioneer High School charges that for autos for U of M Football games. 


If you're going to the game, there are plenty of areas where one can park on the street for no charge.  When I have gone to U of M football games I usually park in one of the neighborhoods off of W Stadium Blvd, west of Michigan Stadium.


Ticketmaster did not have a "print at home" option for the tickets that went on sale in October.  I just received mine today from UPS & they are just the regular boring Ticketmaster hard tickets, not the fancy ones that were sold during the team's pre-sales (like drumnj's tickets).
